10 million combinations
The visual and kinaesthetic nature of Rory’s Story Cubes®, along with the simplicity of design and gameplay make it accessible to engage with for all ages and abilities.
How it works…
Rory’s Story Cubes are a remarkably simple and effective means for inspiring creative thinking and problem solving in all of us. Simply toss all the dice, examine each of the nine face-up images and let them guide your imagination through a story that begins with “Once upon a time…”.
The nine dice, each with an image on six sides, hold a total of 54 images. This means that with every roll, there are over 10 million combinations for you to use as the inspiration for your story. The uses for Rory’s Story Cubes are boundless. Whether it’s in a classroom or business, the process of creating and telling your own story can provide untold understanding of our language, of the world we live in and of ourselves.
The secret is not to think too deeply. Simply ‘gulp’ in the images and start talking. The story will reveal itself through the cubes and in so doing, will unleash creativity, freedom of expression and frequently, an insight to how to solve a seemingly intractable personal or business problem.
The quality cubes are moulded for durability and feel really good to hold. The take-anywhere box (60mmx60mmx25mm) is durable and popular with teachers and other professionals as a portable tool.
